‘If you don’t support the Green New Deal — You are a gramma killer!’ Climate change is the new Covid – Morano on Andrew Lawton Show talks how public health links climate to more viruses

Canada’s public health officials have recently added “climate change,” “capitalism,” and “colonization” to an ever-growing list of public health threats, in a report written for Dr. Theresa Tam. Climate Depot’s Marc Morano joined True North’s Andrew Lawton to discuss the potential consequences of this move, including the possibility of climate lockdowns and authoritarian restrictions.

‘Decolonization, justice, & equity’: Chief Public Health Officer of Canada report finds ‘climate change…white supremacy, capitalism, colonialism, & racism’ are ‘systemic drivers of negative health’ – Dr. Theresa Tam lists climate change and capitalism as drivers of negative health – In its latest report titled, “What We Heard: Perspectives on Climate Change and Public Health Canada,” the government suggests that these issues must be addressed in order to improve public health. “We heard that there is a central role for public health systems in climate change adaptation,” writes the report. “We also heard that there is an urgent need to strengthen public health systems’ strategies to actively engage in decolonizing action, and embrace other systems of knowledge regarding human well-being and planetary health. The report stated: “Systemic drivers of negative health outcomes and climate change overlap; white supremacy, capitalism, colonialism, and racism must be addressed.”

The “experts” claimed to have solutions to these fears, including “embracing an intersectoral approach to the climate challenge,” and “greater public health leadership centring on decolonization, justice, and equity.”
